We are once again seeking judges for The Molly Contest for unpublished writer’s 1st and 2nd rounds.  We hope that many of our members and other romance writers are willing and able to help judge.

The first round panels (of up to 5 entries each) will be emailed out at the end of May and should be returned near the end of June. The 2nd round, which consists of published author judges, would be sent to the judges the first week in July and should be returned by August 6th. Each entry consists of up to the first 30 pages of a manuscript and unjudged synopsis of no more than 5 pages.

This year we will have only Electronic entries.

If you are willing to judge either or both rounds, please fill in this form and return it to Mollycoordinator@hodrw.com.

Thank you so much for your time,


Lesli Lent, 2010 Molly judge coordinator
